Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Back-to-back stemplot

    A stemplot with leaves on either side used to compare two distributions.

  • Boundary

    The set of points on the “edge” of a region

  • Constant of variation

    See Power function.

  • Decreasing on an interval

    A function f is decreasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a negative change in ƒ(x)

  • Difference of complex numbers

    (a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i

  • Ellipsoid of revolution

    A surface generated by rotating an ellipse about its major axis

  • Graph of an inequality in x and y

    The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the solutions x, y of the inequality.

  • Horizontal translation

    A shift of a graph to the left or right.

  • Line graph

    A graph of data in which consecutive data points are connected by line segments

  • Normal distribution

    A distribution of data shaped like the normal curve.

  • Octants

    The eight regions of space determined by the coordinate planes.

  • Polar coordinate system

    A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

  • Proportional

    See Power function

  • Quartic regression

    A procedure for fitting a quartic function to a set of data.

  • Quotient identities

    tan ?= sin ?cos ?and cot ?= cos ? sin ?

  • Randomization

    The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to use the laws of probability when making inferences.

  • Reduced row echelon form

    A matrix in row echelon form with every column that has a leading 1 having 0’s in all other positions.

  • System

    A set of equations or inequalities.

  • Vertex form for a quadratic function

    ƒ(x) = a(x - h)2 + k

  • y-coordinate

    The directed distance from the x-axis xz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the second number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
